Morgantown, W.Va. – Tricia Calemine-Dolan, Executive Director at Clarksburg Nursing & Rehabilitation Center (N&RC), has been named the Administrator of the Year by the West Virginia Health Care Association (WVHCA).
Calemine-Dolan received the award at the association’s annual convention and awards Gala at the Marriott Waterfront Place hotel in Morgantown.
She was nominated by the employees at Clarksburg for her hands-on leadership. She walks the halls each day meeting with employees and patients. At times, she will sit and have a cup of coffee and listen to the patient’s stories and chat with them.
During a severe winter storm, Calemine-Dolan organized the department managers to stay and help the current staff because many employees in the outlying areas were unable to make it. By the second day she was in scrubs supporting the other employees and patients throughout the center.
Under Calemine-Dolan’s leadership, Clarksburg N&RC has continued to be one of the top skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers. Clarksburg N&RC has earned Five-Star Ratings through the Centers for Medicaid/Medicare Services Nursing Home Compare program, ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation for customer and employee satisfaction, and earned two deficiency-free state inspections.
“I’m very honored to receive this recognition,” Calemine-Dolan said. “But it all really comes down to taking care of our patients and meeting their needs. It is the incredible team here that has made this award and all our other achievements possible, and I thank them for their dedication.”
At the 2016 WVHCA awards gala, Clarksburg N&RC won the award for their efforts in community service. The center has been active in volunteering to presenting money to local charities through the AMFM Charitable Foundation, Inc.
Calemine-Dolan graduated from West Virginia University (WVU) with a Bachelor’s Degree in psychology and then received her Master’s degree in Special Education with an emphasis on learning disabilities. After working as a clinician with individuals with developmental disabilities for several years, she joined Clarksburg N&RC as the Social Services Director.
